When loved ones go wrong

I recently found out that my nephew is now attending Regents University law school. When my brother gave me this bit of news I was speechless. All I could say was, "oh no!" Brother is thrilled though. I can accept my brother and his family are conservative and Republican and fundamentalist. I don't like it, but I can deal with it. Lining up with Pat Robertson is off the rails though and I am having a very, very hard time getting my head around it.

Pat Robertson! The guy who said Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who suffered a massive stroke, was stricken by God as punishment for ceding the Gaza Strip and a portion of the West Bank to Palestinians. Yeah...Pat Robertson, who also said, "the feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

Pat Robertson...the guy who would round up me and my friends and put us in concentration camps if he could.

I want to vomit. I want to scream. I love my brother. I feel lost.
